couple who were riding with us, morning and afternoon, mr. and mrs. lee. mr. lee was the dialysis patient and he's probably in his 80's and every time we would drive up to buchanan street, the hospital, mr. lee would say, "good job, fine driver, number one driver" and he would go like this [thumbs up gesture]. and then as brian would be helping him off the van, mr. lee, i heard him so often say, "brian, if anybody gives you any trouble you send them to me and i'll take care of them." and here great big old brian would say, "henry, you're the first one i would try to get help from." and he says, "the second one is elsa." [laugh] so we knew that we were being relied on by brian. a few weeks back, mrs. lee called brian early in the morning to tell him not to bother picking them up because they were already at the hospital. mr. lee was ill and she had taken him to the er. the next day or so, brian, on his lunchtime, found out that mr. lee had been admitted to the hospital and he went up to mr. lee's room and just stuck his head in just to say hello. and the minute mr. lee saw him he went [ges

this effort. [applause] >> ok, this one is for mayor lee. it is more of a chart, but it is an illustration as well. "time" magazine said 2011 was the year of the protester, right? i want 2012 to be the year of collaboration and getting it done. this is new. this is different. we are talking about the super bowl of life. we are in the playoffs already. we need offense, defense, protesters, advocates, a business community, religious leaders. you know, we cannot just pray about it. we have to put some of our money where our mouth is. we need san francisco to pull together to deal with the super bowl of life issue, which is housing. why were people protesting last year? there is no housing. we have to do something. the state let us behind. the feds did, too, but san francisco was going to find a way. i want to give a big hand to the coach, the quarterback. we are calling the play now, right? san francisco, we want to score for affordable and moderate rate housing. thank you. this is a beautiful illustration of that. the one and only rev. dr. mcrae. a brother, an advocate. he can d

for this position and first i will note that he lives in san francisco and mr. lee, who i like and i have nothing against, does not live in san francisco. he requires a residency waiver and i'm not saying he has no connections. he's done a lot of work in the city. but we hear this a lot. that we have a lot of qualified candidates who live in san francisco for these positions and i think that we should err on the side of appointing residents. mr. eicher has a background in technology industry and as someone who works regularly with the entertainment commission, i can tell you the entertainment commission need as lot of help on its technology and it needs an upgrade and we put a lot on that commission and a it needs the technology to do it. mr. eicher now co-owns three neighborhood bars in the castro, the midnight sun, the edge and the q bar. so in addition to bringing a night club perspective, he brings a perspective of a neighborhood bar owner. i will note that based on what i have been able to ascertain, castro has never had a representative, never had a resident or a bar owner from

for mr. lee, some of the folks who on the outside of have been advocating, i've heard of them making a comment that there are too many gay people on the entertainment commission. i was very surprised to hear that. of course in the lgbt community, entertainment is extremely important so there's no surprising that there's a high interest level on this commission. but i went and did a little research on some of the mainly commissions in the city and although i can't say with 100% certainty always who's gay and who's not, i have a good sense. so looking at major commissions, as far as i can tell, the airport commission has no lgbt people and has never had an lgbt person. the ethics commission i don't believe has an lgbt person. the fire commission has no lgbt commissioner. the planning commissioner with the appointment of commissioner ole has no lgbt people. looking at some other major commissions, board of appeals has one lgbt representative, the police commissioner has one. the m.t.a. board of directors has one. the portland commission has one -- port commission has one. the redevelopmen
